Ayden {newborn portraits}

This adorable little man came to visit at 9 days old, with his cousin Myles. I super love his dark hair (reminds me of my own little guy when he was born!) and his beautiful eyes. I really love the pictures we took of him and his mama! Unlike his cousin, Ayden decided there was much too much excitement and he was quite happy to be awake during his visit! I can’t wait to try again this week (and get more snuggle time in!)

Kaitlynn, you are one blessed mama!

Myles {newborn portraits}

This precious little guy came to visit me at a little over two weeks old, and he made us work for these portraits but once he was asleep he was a dream to photograph!

A baby is an angel whose wings decrease while his legs increase.

Hailey, what a cute little man you have!

Pet Mini Sessions {featuring Bailey & Banjo}

For several years now, one of my best photographer friends has been the wonderful and talented Julie of Bailey & Banjo Photography. If you’ve ever visited her site, you know first hand that her pet photography is truly one of a kind! I am constantly amazed at how well she captures the personality of people’s favorite four-legged friends!

This year, Julie has embarked on a 365 day journey of taking one dog’s picture a day. I love hearing her behind-the-scenes stories of where she discovered each day’s pup, about their personality, and how she chooses each picture. Julie had decided to make a calendar featuring all of these cute dogs at the end of the year to benefit The Chase Away K9 Cancer Fund within the National Canine Cancer Foundation. (another thing I love about Julie, hang around her page long enough and you will see that Bailey & Banjo is about taking adorable pictures but also giving back to help those pups stay healthy!)

So, why am I bringing all of this up? Well, yesterday Julie came down to the area, and stopped in to see the studio for the first time. She took her Dog a Day in my studio, and then we started to discuss her coming down to use the studio for some mini sessions! These aren’t any mini sessions, however. Julie has partnered with this great organization called Smile for a Cure, and for the month of February ALL of your mini session fee goes directly to them! If we get enough interest, we will schedule a day of studio minis here in Centralia (ETA: on the books for February 18th)!

How much?

$125 with $125 of that going to Smile for a Cure! Session fees are typically $275 for a full session, but for this they will be at this reduced rate!

Collections for the Smile for a Cure Minis
All collections:
- Are approximately 50% of a la carte prices
- Come with free watermarked Facebook files
- A blog feature about your dog, how they became a part of your family, and anything special you’d like me to add.

A: 2-5×7 prints, 1-8×10 print and 1-10×20 storyboard (storyboard includes 3 images) – $175
B: All of Collection A + 1 metal print – $250
C: All of Collection A + Collection B + All print ready digital files. All burned on a custom designed DVD & DVD case with your dogs images (BEST VALUE). – $500

If you want to purchase additional prints or other items, they are available for purchase for 25% off of Banjo & Bailey’s a la carte prices (collections in the product guide are not for sale with these sessions).

Winter Studio Specials

These are the days having a studio is a lifesaver! I am so glad to have a toasty warm and bright studio to welcome new families and little ones into during the winter gloom and rain of Washington! To celebrate my first winter in the studio and thank my wonderful clients, I am offering a new special each month! These are only for full studio sessions, cake smash sessions or newborn sessions that are booked and take place during January, February or March. Please mention the special at time of booking or your session so I can make a note on your file (and not forget!)

To book your winter studio session, give me a call at 360.827.1609 or e-mail info@mandimcdougallphotography.com

Montante {seabrook family session}

Katie, Jim and Ava are one of my favorite families to photograph, and Seabrook happens to be one of my favorite idyllic getaway spots in Washington. Put them together, and you have one happy photographer, one happy family, and some super fun, memorable photographs! {sidenote: these pictures are the first of several mostly indoor, lifestyle sessions I have coming up on the blog. I LOVE capturing families outdoors year-round, but want to offer an alternative for families with little ones who prefer the comforts of home OR a family that wants to capture an typical day-in-the-life with their always growing and changing family. These sessions take place during the morning and early afternoon hours, and can be centered around a meal, family activities like board games, or just hanging out doing what your family enjoys. Although mostly indoor, we can certainly step outside to your backyard or in your neighborhood for some shots as you will see below. And if your family would rather capture your stay-cation, like this family did? I travel, happily!}

Katie and company, thank you so much for letting me come out

Be sure to leave some love for Katie and her family (add a comment below) to help them win a free 8×10!
